Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Krista McLellan, Published Author and Public Speaker, located in Kingston, NH, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am a published author, QuickBooks Online Geek, and prosperity and business coach focusing on helping women start and run their small businesses.
Tell us about yourself
I fell into bookkeeping, doing it for my own home daycare, and eventually branched out to help others with their books and businesses.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Building a business that has been able to support me and my two daughters, as well as my team members, is a huge accomplishment.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Work-life balance and mom guilt are real. Having clients that need me and kids that need me, and work I love is a tug of war of where to spend my time.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Don't wait! You are ready, and the world needs your unique gifts.
- Understand and keep up with your bookkeeping. Not doing this has been the biggest downfall to success for business owners.
- Set clear boundaries with clients and staff. We need to be able to shut work off and be with our families. Boundaries help make that happen.
